Nero dvd burn failed (see log)

I tried to burn a disc this morning and got an error. I have no idea why it failed to complete. My burning speed was at 4x. I’m using version 7.9.6.0. The media used was a Verbatim DVD+R. I do not understand the Nero log. Can anyone help me? If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. Thanks.

Here’s the log:

It is a medium error, but I don’t really understand why you would get this with a modern burner using some of the best available disks—Verbatim 16x +R. Is this the only instance of a failed burn, or has this happened before now? Have you inspected the disk for dirt, fingerprint smudges or an obvious flaw?

4x is a little slower than most people around here recommend burning these particular disks. Most would say 8x or 12x is optimal, but I don’t think this would cause a complete failure in your burn.

Just to satisfy my curiosity, you are copying an entire movie with Recode from files you’ve ripped to the hard drive. Is that correct?

Agree with kerry56 on burning at 8x or 12x. Also if backup on HDD then burn same project using IMGBurn, maybe it’s a Nero prob…I personally don’t use Nero for my flick burns…

Hey guys -

I was burning the disc using “burn at once” when I encountered the problem. I redid it again with that unselected and it seemed to burn fine.

I usually burn at a slower speed to prevent any errors - just a caution on my behalf.

Thanks to both of you for replying.

DVDs are burnt in DAO mode, most of all.
